PLEASE GET VACCINATED!
Since early 2020, Covid-19 has caused mayhem the world over. Spreading rapidly, it can cause illness, long term disability, and death. The Covid-19 pandemic has been met with much political turmoil - causing misinformation, violence, and unnecessary risk. Many charts and diagrams exists highlighting the dangers of Covid-19 in the workplace. COVID SIMULATOR hopes to visualize how quickly Covid-19 spreads, becoming a disaster.
In Covid-19 Simulator you can:
- Create a procedural generated work place
- Create your OWN workplace with the level editor
- Adjust the number of employees, infected, masked, and vaccinated
- Adjust layouts to match what you'd like
- Manually add/remove masks and vaccinations
- Hire/Fire Employees
- Encourage Pro/Anti Vaccine behavior
- Give 'alternative medicine' treatments
- Speed up or slow down time to view the results
- View and save charts showing spread over time
- Integrate with Twitch to let your viewers be in the game!
- The game is controlled by mouse and left click.
- You can move the screen with WASD or the ARROW KEYS.
COVID SIMULATOR IS A WORK IN PROGRESS
My personal goal with this game is to convince at least one person to get vaccinated, and/or improve their daily precautions against Covid-19. I have made the game free (pay what you want) in order to make sure as many people can see it as possible. It is my hope that seeing the speed of transmission and the scary results will open someones eyes.
FOR LEVEL EDITOR :
All levels you make are saved in the Resources/Maps folder. You lay down tiles and objects by left click, and delete with right click. You must have doors to leave, and rooms marked in order to save a map. Maps with areas that are "blocked" can cause pathfinding to crash the game!
FOR TWITCH INTEGRATION:
In the game folder under Assets/Resources/ is a text file labeled "TwitchConnect." simply input your information and the game will automatically be connected to your steam channel. Simply delete your information if you'd no longer like that connection.
THE PRIMARY CONDITIONS THAT EFFECT REAL WORLD COVID-19 INFECTION/TRANSMISSION/CONDITIONS/RESULTS ARE:
- ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE
The game bases the infections/transmissions/conditions/results of Covid-19 on the US CDC statistics which are based on age/gender/health/ethnicity. This game does not insinuate any ethnic disposition towards Covid-19, however it is personally important to me to demonstrate the extreme dangers that minorities are currently experiencing with the pandemic. It is impossible for a simple game to fully simulate the intricacies of every day human life.
The random ages, genders, health, and ethnicity is based on percentages reported in the US Census data for people in the work place. These are nation wide averages, and does not reflect any particular area.
I am NOT a statistician or a virologist. I am a game developer. This simulator/visualization appears to have similar outcomes to real world results - however it will likely never be real world accurate. It is only a game, meant to demonstrate the dangers of unchecked Covid-19 spread. Within the game files is a stat sheet which can be edited if you would like to change the outcomes/results! If you ARE a statistician or a virologist, please contact me - I would LOVE to expand the accuracy of this game.
